Photoshop turned twenty years old this year. That may seem like nothin' but a number, but when you look at the Mac platforms it's migrated to and from, and the fact that it's had 12 versions, Photoshop's twenty years have seen a lot of changes for one application. From System 6 on the Motorola 68000, it was then ported to PowerPC, then to OS X, then to OS X Intel, and now to Cocoa and 64-bit. All this while adding the features that make it the meaty image editor it is today. One look at the laundry list of major additions in CS5 makes it clear that Adobe isn't anywhere near done with the product.
- Wet media brushes
- Content-aware fill and heal tools
- Improved masking/chroma keying
- Camera RAW 6
- Puppet Warp
- Mini Bridge
- Data-based lens distortion correction with custom lens profiling application
- Local adaptation tone-mapping
- Faster realtime 3D engine
- Repoussé 3D features and HDR image-based lighting
- New floating color picker and eyedropper
Of course, all of these features also appear in the Windows version, which has had 32- and 64-bit flavors since version CS4. Let's not forget that Windows 7 just came out as well, so Adobe's had its work cut out for it with this latest installment. I've been working with the betas and the release for a while now, so let's see how it all worked out.
